in the house who don't want to raise the debt ceiling at all and don't even think a three-month extension of the debt ceiling as a ploy to put the political pressure on the senate democrats to pass a budget, they may not even vote for this. so he has his work cut out for him to make sure that his caucus or at least the vast majority of it is on board for this. and for the senate democrats, if this three-month extension passes, it does move the spotlight, it does put the heat on them and they haven't passed a budget in years, and you know, it goes to the senate and it goes to senate majority leader harry reid and we'll see what they do. but first, john boehner has to get his folks on board in the house. >> andy, carrie, good to see both of you. thanks. >> thank you. >>> boy, it was a stunning way to cap off the inaugural festivities. the president and first lady sharing a dance at the inaugural ball of course, to "let's stay together" performed by jennifer hudson. she sang this song earlier at the commander-in-chief's ball. mrs. obama wore that amazing red dress by jason wu. her outfit will now go to the national archives. she actually took time out of her night to tweet

statement, and one of the witnesses are talked about gramm-rudman. it was attached to a debt ceiling bill. i was among the democrats who voted for it, but it passed -- it was deemed passed in the house. and the debt ceiling bill was used by senators as a vehicle, not as a threat. and not for leverage but as a vehicle to attach deficit reduction. so the use of the debt ceiling for the purpose that is ascribed to this one does not have a history that supports its use for this purpose. and so to the extent that you have the ability to look at this issue, i would urge that this is not only a dangerous precedent but a very likely problem for the economy when we need to emphasize economic growth and jobs. so i say that in a somewhat sober way because of what happened before. thank you. >> thank you very much. i'd like to welcome mr. brady, former chairman of the house administration committee, who's joining us today and our new chairman -- chairwoman candice miller, will be recognized at this time. chairwoman. >> thank you, mr. chairman. and i also am delighted to see you sitting in the seat there and welcome to the new members of the rules committee. i feel like i got florida covering my back over here. yeah. got your back. and i'm delig
